|5 låtar för Margarethe - Buben|
Vladislav Buben returns to BFW with one of the best and most interesting releases of 2012 (in my humble opinion). Layered electronics, manic voices and saxophones that defy much description. The mini-album by the Belarusian electronic musician Vladislav Buben is dedicated to his Swedish friend Margarethe Műntzing-Kuhn. Vladislav says about Margarethe: “She is the person who with her love and positive attitude to life has influenced me and many others creating a different look at the world aro...

|Captain Future Rock [BFW114] - Kamin|
The debut release from Kamin is a fantastic electronic journey. There is a nice mix on this album - from dark electronica with real "synth-y" synths and real drums to beautiful ambient landscapes. My description does this album no justice, so I would suggest you have a listen and judge for yourself!

|Deaf3Ants [BFW097] - Elypixa|
Here is the new experimental project from Elypixa. It would be too pretentious to compare himself to Beethoven, but he has inspired Elypixa. Beethoven continued to write, compose music after becoming deaf. That's where Elypixa had an idea - compose an album without listening to what he does, just taking into account the knowledge of its design software. Elypixa randomly selected sounds and synthesizers.....

A while back, we invited BFW artists and our friends to submit songs for a BFW Christmas Album. We left the scope for these contributions quite wide - you could write a song with a Christmas or Winter feel, or maybe a song for your love ones, or even get out the sleigh bells and croon like Nat King Cole! It just had to be an original song - we aren't doing an album of ambient Christmas carols! What we got has astounded us...

The new experimental ambient album from Meteer. This is another triumph! Meteer once again delivers an album of immense beauty.
